Henley Royal Regatta 2017


The Senior Men’s squad aim to compete at the major domestic head races and regattas. The main head races we race at include Pairs Head, Fours Head, Scullers head and VIIIs head. We also compete at a number of regional races in preparation for these events. After the VIII’s head, we turn our attention to regatta racing. We kick start this with a training camp and then race at Wallingford, Met, Nottingham, Reading, Marlow and Henley Royal Regatta.
Post HRR we send some of our top athletes to the Home International Trials and for the rest of the summer, we compete in the smaller regattas such as Kingston Regatta, St Neots Regatta, Sudbury Regatta and Peterborough Regatta.

Over the past few years, the club has gone from strength to strength. We have qualified at least one boat in HRR since 2004, have had regatta wins at Reading and Marlow, and have had wins in pairs head, sculler’s head along with some credible performances in the fours and VIIIs head. This last season we qualified a double into the Open Double Sculls Challenge Cup.


Training

The senior squad aim to train at the following days and times:

Tuesday 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Wednesday 7:00pm – 9:00pm
Thursday 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Saturday 7:30am – 10:00am and 11:00am – 12:30pm (Technical/Confidence skills)
Sunday 7:00am – 9:00am and 10:00am – 11:00am (Weights Circuit)

We train in small boats (1x, 2-) for the majority of the winter season (August-March) with the exception of Fours head and HORR where we train in the respective boat categories. Some of the squad also scull in the mornings before work. Post HORR potential Henley Royal Regatta standard members are put into crew combinations and we attend a host of events to decide on the final entries for Henley Royal Regatta. This last year (2016/2017) we qualified a boat in the open Double Sculls Challenge Cup. We have a very large catchment area so we tend to do most of our land training individually, however, we do run a biweekly group ergo session.

And out of the Thames…

Posted by Penny Scorah | June 30, 2010

Perhaps inevitable after drawing London RC ‘A’, but the VIII kept the pressure on the London crew all the way, in the end loosing by 2 1/4 lengths. A difficult day for the lads but we’re all proud. Getting 2 boats through to Henley is a great achievement and perhaps next year we might have some luck with the draw!

Out of the Wyfolds

The seeded Star club beat our IV by 3 lengths at Henley. Let’s hope the VIII have more luck!

Henley here we come!

Whilst the women of Broxbourne ponder their dress choice for this years Henley and whether the shuffle technique will have to be deployed, the senior men are quietly preparing for Wednesday’s heats. The draw is out and fortunately for the IV there is a nice big gap of 10 hours between races.

Wednesday’s Timetable
9.15am: The IV will be racing in the first heat of The Wyfold Challenge Cup against Star Club.
7.00pm: The VIII will be racing in the first heat of The Thames Challenge Cup against London A.

A full timetable of Wednesday’s racing can be seen here: http://www.hrr.co.uk/pdisp.php?pid=318
Best of luck to the crews and watch this space for live results (assuming the iPhone doesn’t malfunction)

Wyfold IV have qualified!

An excellent row at Henley qualifiers for the mens coxless IV. Well done to Adam, Craig, Graham and Chris! That’s two Broxbourne crews through to Henley this year. The draw takes place at 3pm tomorrow…

Henley Qualification for the Thames VIII

Posted by Chris Scorah | June 21, 2010

After the roller coaster ride that was yesterday, the crew met up for an evening paddle with spirits raised by pre-qualification of the VIII for the Thames cup.  We have now secured qualification for at least one boat for the past seven Henley Royal Regattas.  A strong paddle left the roller coaster ride that was Marlow far behind.  Not many outings until we race!  The IV has to go through the qualifiers on Friday.
